found this really interesting. many people say that suggests these online pharmacist could be a big factor in the prescription drug problem overall. for one second i want to show you some numbers as to how big a number we're talking about here. . according to the national institute on drug abuse about 7 million people using prescription drugs for non-medical reason. in 2009 ant 3% of the population. nearly one in 12 high school seniors report non-medical use of vicodin. one in 20 say they used oxycontin. what's interesting, drew, is that 59% of those high school seniors also say they got the drugs from a friend or a relative. which brings up another question. as you've been pointing out in your reports, it's so easy to buy these drugs online. but if the pharmacies start to shut down, can people get term from their family or friends pretty easily? >> they certainly will. but i think it's the proliferation of the ease of getting these drugs. and even people who want these drugs, let's say a doctor predescribes them. but the prescription runs out. they're addicted. they want to keep it

it to the editorial board of the big newspapers here about two weeks before he was arrested in new york. he certainly was aware of the fact that there must have been something out there that people would try to accuse him of this or try to set him up is what he had suggested in his interview with the editorial board. yeah, i think politics here can be pretty dirty when it comes to presidential campaigns, and certainly, in his case, i think since he was a leading opponent, that there was a suggestion that perhaps his opponents were going to do something and that this whole thing was a setup. there's been some rumors and accusations about that that have been in the press here over the last few days, so this whole thing was set up with the hotel maid in new york. that of course, the charges still have not been dropped in new york but looks like they may be. nonetheless, it's a case that has large political overtones for france in a presidential election year. there's a lot at stake here. >> absolutely. certainly not over. jim bittermann, thank you so much. our man in paris. thanks a million. >>> the jur

. there was a moment in time when president obama was talking about doing big things and being the guy and turnin turning this into a much needed win by a beleaguered president. we are seeing this fade away, we are seeing the administration give control of this discussion to capitol hill, just like with other things. martha: as you say, in previous confrontations when it came to healthcare, stimulus, all of that got pwubgd back to congress to work out the details. he looked like he wanted to be out in front of this. why do you think he changed his mind? >> reporter: it's really hard. being president is really hard but also doing a deal like this is really hard because the scope of what you're talking about isn't -- this isn't about money. we heard over the w weekend, or it's 400 billion on this or 800 billion on that, there is a chasm which exists between the republicans and the house, the conservatives from 2010 and president obama who is puerto rico the hreu ral wing of the democratic party and his victory in 2008. there is a rubber game that needs to be played here, that is the 2012 election a
